Wanderers: The Espanyol of the A-League

Since I’ve moved away from Sydney, my traditional derby day sequence of ’bus, pub, train, march, lose voice, kebab, train, home’ has been replaced with something most Australian fans of European football will be familiar with – ‘set alarm, wake up early, watch game on other side of the world’. Not being able to attend […]

The Best and Worst of Wanderers vs Sydney FC (Rd 21)

A-League Round 21 vs Sydney FC – 25/02/2018 Allianz Stadium 1-3 Loss This week’s Best and Worst sees us endure torrential conditions at the last Sydney Derby at Allianz Stadium in its current form.

623 – VARcicalls

It did work in our favour in the end, but it’s VAR from the finished product.

Whilst ‘top’ referee’s were getting calls wrong in all sorts and the video assistant referee was probably playing FIFA instead, there was an excitement and fire in the crowd that we haven’t seen in a while at fortress Spotless.

Turner, Tatiyana and Nick discuss that all over the place game against the Jets, why VAR isn’t working and whether this could be the Wanderers’ best chance of a win over Sydney FC away at Allianz in many a season.

The Best and Worst of Wanderers vs Sydney FC (Rd 10)

A-League Round 10 vs Sydney FC – 09/12/2017 ANZ Stadium 0-5 Loss I’ve been putting off writing this week’s Best and Worst, but here it is. It’s quite easy and tempting to go “Worst and Worser” The End. Let’s see what I can come up with after that disaster. Note, I have not re-watched the […]

613 – Do or Do Not: There Is No Try

Another Sydney derby, a new hope.

Revenge of the red and black? Who knows.

In weeks where the force hasn’t been with us we ask the players ‘may the force be with you’.

We hope that after the weekend we will see a W next to our name and then say “now that’s a letter I have not seen in a long time”.

We hope our players will have the Jedi skills to convince the referee’s and VAR that “these are not the yellow cards and calls you’re looking for”.

This weekend it is do, or do not. There is no try.
